As I waited and watched for the eclipse of the Moon from my bedroom window I’m afraid sleep overcame me before I glimpsed any form of shadowing on the moon……still….. I was completely in awe of the majesty of this mighty celestial being in her fullness.
Today’s collaborative piece is about the cycle and connectedness of the Earth, Sun and Moon.
“A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and Moon align in an almost straight line. When this happens, the Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon’s surface, and covers a part of the Moon with the outer part of its shadow, also known as the penumbra. The rest receives the same amount of sunlight as usual and is as bright as a full Moon.”
